  • Thorobreds win HCIWT

    In the 19th annual HCIWT, the Harrison County Thorobreds did what they have done seven other times and that was win the event.  
    The tradition of placing first or second began in 1996 and has been carried out in 13 of the 19 tournaments.  
    The invitational has been both a dual tournament and an individual event with this year being a dual clash.  
    There were 10 teams scheduled to compete with the competition broken up into two five-team pools.  

  • Profile of an assistant

    This week’s profile is Thorobreds’ assistant Larry Kendall.  
    Larry is the youngest son of Harold and Delores Kendall, born in Carrollton in 1966.  Larry has two brothers, Lee and Louis, both of Cynthiana.  
    He graduated from Harrison County High School in 1985 and received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1990 from Eastern Kentucky University.  

  • Fillies win two of three to...

    The Harrison County Fillies completed 2010 by splitting the four games they played in the Paris-Bourbon County Holiday Classic last week.  
    They opened the tournament with the game reported last week, the 60-45 loss to Ohio County. The Fillies battled the Bell County Lady Cats on Thursday morning after the Region 13 power lost a tough game to Lafayette 49-35 in a game where they could not buy a basket early.  

  • We need to go back to...

    There are many reasons that I believe we need to go back to having intramural teams in the seventh and eighth grades.  
    The first reason and probably the most important is to have more of our youth involved in an extra curricular activity.
    Young people change a great deal in the years between sixth grade and the end of high school, and the way it works right now, once the “selection” of the traveling squads is made that’s all there is for the students who are not picked.  

  • Breds’ victory chances run afoul...

    After dropping a close game to Lewis County and routing Morgan County, the Harrison County Thorobreds were facing the task of playing the home team, the Polar Bears, in Wednesday’s game in the National Bank Classic.  
    The Breds were no match for center Todd Jefferson as the 6-foot-5 senior scored 30 points for the game, 18 in the first half as the Polar Bears took a 40-31 half time lead.  
    Senior guard Andrew Cummins added 20 points in the 68-63 Bracken County victory.

  • Thorobred wrestlers wrap up...

    The Region 7 super duals were held last week at Henry Clay High School on Wednesday and Thursday.  
    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestled five matches on each day, a grueling schedule.  
    Lafayette was the surprise winner of the meet defeating perennial power Woodford County with the host Blue Devils finishing third.  
    Harrison County was in the middle of the pack winning five matches and losing six.  

  • Profile of an assistant

    At the suggestion of one of the varsity coaches, I am going to do a series of articles on the assistant coaches of the various sports at Harrison County High School.
    The first coach is Fillies Basketball assistant Kim Furnish.  
    Kim is the youngest child of Jim and Teresa Furnish and a 2002 graduate of Harrison County High School.  
    She played basketball at Harrison County for Coach Mac Whitaker and started on both the 2000 and 2002 Regional Champion teams.  

  • Breds in Bracken tournament,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are finishing 2010 by playing in a tournament in Bracken County.  
    The tournament began on Monday with the Breds facing the Lewis County Lions of the 16th region at 4:45 p.m.  
    The Lions brought a 5-4 record into the game with a line up that included eight seniors to face the inexperienced Thorobreds.
    It didn’t take long for the Lions to show their poise and senior leadership as they handled the Harrison County trap and press with little difficulty.  

  • Ohio County too much for Fillies...

    The three-time defending third region champion Ohio County Lady Eagles had their hands full for three quarters of the game before pulling away from the Harrison County Fillies, 45-60, Tuesday night.  
    This was the last game of the first day of the Paris-Bourbon County Holiday Classic held at Bourbon County High School.   
    The Fillies led at the end of the first quarter by one as both teams had trouble getting going.
